The Value of Creativity

Developing Creativity In Students In A Global Society

Prioritize & Innovate

  • Globalization requires new and innovative approaches to education, producing graduates who understand the complex interconnections between politics, cultures, economies and technologies around the world.

  • While these students may be seen as not wanting to follow the traditional rules while in school; their creativity is what drives this nation into a global social economy.

Enhance & Promote

  • Make Small Changes to Make a Big Difference:
    *Increase exposure to creativity work
    *Foster intellectual curiosity
    *Provide an atmosphere in which creativity effort is valued

  • As teachers, we need to work to develop our student's creativity and critical thinking skills both in the classroom and in life.
